remember when the ice cream truck came to our town.
All my friends and I ran to be the first to have an
ice cream because the first one always got the
biggest amount. Oh! To be first and to get the
biggest ice cream was heavenly. I remember several
funny things about the ice cream truck.

cartoon show. Second, the ice cream man yelled "
Ice cream! Ice cream!, If you buy one, you are
going to be happy forever!" So, I always said to my
mom " I want an ice cream because I would like to
be happy forever, forever

reminds me of this when we buy ice cream.

I can't eat a lot of ice cream, or I get a

and enjoy it a lot!

because it makes me feel good.

any of the other four seasons, it isn't difficult
to think of summer. Thinking about summer always
makes me think about the holidays: the sea, the
beach, the sun, the hot weather and many good times
with friends. So I think ice cream is very
important for us: for our bodies, and for our

cream is my favorite food. I like to eat vanilla
ice cream in the summer. When I eat ice cream I
think about my family because they like ice cream,
too. Ice cream is sweet and melty. Some ice cream
is too sweet, but we can find ice cream that is not
too sweet, and we can enjoy melting ice cream. In
the summer it melts fast, but in the winter it

I eat ice cream, I think about my husband, my
family, and my friends because the are very sweet,
and nice just like ice cream.
remember those summers in my country when we went
to a cafe to eat ice cream because we loved it. I
